Fedora Update Notification

Name        : fontforge
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 20120731b
Release     : 5.fc17
URL         : http://fontforge.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Outline and bitmap font editor
Description :
FontForge (former PfaEdit) is a font editor for outline and bitmap
fonts. It supports a range of font formats, including PostScript
(ASCII and binary Type 1, some Type 3 and Type 0), TrueType, OpenType
(Type2) and CID-keyed fonts.

Update Information:

When browsing directories in "Extract from PDF" mode, FontForge attempts to retrieve font names from all PDFs in the directory and could crash if it couldn't parse a PDF. FontForge now detects this and stops parsing that PDF, which may mean that it won't offer to extract from PDFs that you *know* contain fonts.
